Salalah

Located on a lush stretch of Arabian coast, Salalah is the second largest city in the Sultanate of Oman, and the birthplace of the country’s current leader, Sultan Qaboos bin Said.

MSC cruise ships call at Salalah during the Middle East cruise itineraries. This region, Dhofar province, is renowned for its frankincense production and is marked by lush vegetation; Salalah has a tropical climate and the annual ‘khareef’ (monsoon), drenches the area in refreshing rain, resulting in exceptionally green landscapes, mist-filled green valleys and a coast lined with coconut palms, papaya and banana plantations.

Salalah lies on the famous Frankincense Trail; for 5,000 years, the fragrant resin from the Boswellia tree has been a key commodity, creating fortunes and luring adventurers. To experience this small Middle Eastern city, it is recommended leaving your luxury cruise liner for the day and come ashore. Explore Salalah Museum, the city’s cultural centre and home to ancient scriptures, writings, and pottery.

Salalah is known as the ’perfume city of Arabia’ and a city highlight is the ‘Land of Frankincense’ Museum. The building is located in one of the city’s key archaeological sites, the Port City of Al Baleed, and offers a cultural overview of the region. Take a break to shop for holiday souvenirs in Salalah’s atmospheric spice souk; aromatic nuggets of incense make for great gifts.

Further afield lies the Tomb of Nabi Ayoub, an important religious site and the burial place of the Biblical figure, Job (Ayoub). The ‘lost city’ and UNESCO Heritage Site of Samhuran is a legendary trading centre from ancient times and features the remains of the Palace of the Queen of Sheba. Nature lovers will find paradise in the stunning Wadi Darbat Nature Park, home to cascading waterfalls, clear lakes, mountains, caves and exotic wildlife, and Salalah’s Baobab Forest, home to a 2000 year old tree.
